Star of Luke Cage, Michael Colter, revealed at the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo that principal photography on the Netflix series will start this June.
Colter also said that the filming was expected to wrap in March 2018, which could mean the show will begin streaming on Netflix later that year.
So far, we’ve learned that the show is casting for at least two new series regulars. Many have wondered whether or not the second season would incorporate Danny Rand as Iron Fist premiered in March of this year.
But late last year, showrunner, Cheo Hodari Coker, decided to clarify any “Heroes for Hire” rumors. Coker told Decider:
“Now in my mind — we don’t go into Heroes for Hire in Season One of Luke Cage — Luke Cage Season One is ultimately about the evolution of a hero. I think what’s appealing about Luke is the fact that he’s just somebody who’s just your normal, average guy. He presents himself that way. He’s not pretentious, but then at the same time, feels a responsibility to kind of push forward. We’re not treating it as a one-off, and I’m confident people will dig the show, but, trust me, like Season Two, I’ve got a few ideas. But we really won’t get ready until Netflix sees the viewership, and hopefully, the subscriptions that will come from this show, and then they’ll say, ‘Let’s get into it.'”
It will be interesting to see what the second season of Luke Cage has in store for us. But we’re excited at the prospects.
What do you think season two of Luke Cage will bring? Let us know in the comments below.
While we wait for season two, the first season of Luke Cage is streaming on Netflix if you haven’t had the chance to experience it yet!
